Special Feature: From Asimov to all around us - Welcome to the robot revolution


Our special feature this month contains seven EU-funded projects that are at the forefront of the ongoing robotics revolution, as well as highlighting Europe’s pole position in the global competition for robotics’ innovation.

The wonders of technology are also showcased in Life After, where we have a catch-up with Dr Monica Gori, who was coordinator of the ABBI project, which has pioneered a wearable device that helps partially-sighted children develop a better sense of space and improve their social skills.
